Are you an employer headquartered abroad who posts commercial workers to German construction sites? Or are you a construction worker posted to Germany? In either case special rules apply to the granting of leave and to remuneration.

On the following pages we provide information for employers and commercial workers on the fundamentals and application of the leave fund scheme in Germany. SOKA-BAU applies this leave fund scheme on behalf of the parties to the collective agreement for the German construction industry.

All forms and documents required for participating in our leave fund scheme are available here.

SOKA-BAU advises and supports companies posting commercial workers as well as commercial workers in 14 European languages. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
